What the Gospel is Not

Jan Brueghel (I) - Earth (The Earthly Paradise) - WGA3552

Iconbusters:

“The Gospel is not the Good News that God loves everyone without exception, yet despite His love most humans will spend eternity in Hellfire, consciously experiencing torment with unspeakable agony. The Gospel is not the Good News that God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit will — i.e., earnestly desires — to save all mankind, yet is unable to do so. The Gospel is not the Good News that you can recite a stock ‘Sinner’s Prayer’ and be guaranteed a seat at the Supper of the Lamb. The Gospel is not the Good News that once saved you must work hard to keep your salvation, nor is it the Good News that you may lose that which you once had. The Gospel is not the Good News that once saved you now have license to sin and are not required, in due season, to bear the fruit of a Christian. The Gospel is not the Good News that all who name the name of Christ are saved from damnation. The Gospel is not about living a tribulation-free existence. Nor is it about receiving material, worldly blessings.”
